We had a fabulous time on our tour! My husband and I traveled Europe for a month on our honeymoon and this was by far one of the highlights. The brief intro class at the wine school was informative and the instructor was very knowledgeable and friendly. Then Rebecca drove us to the wineries. She was so much fun and... More

you can't visit Florence or Tuscany without heading out in to the countryside, visiting vineyards, and sampling their wares. Myself and my husband took the Chianti Classico Wine Tour which began with a very informative 101 briefing about the history of winemaking in the region and wine tasting in general. Our 'teacher' was informative, funny, and very welcoming. Even a... More

If you have had enough of museums and sightseeing in Florence, this will be a welcome diversion. Our family enjoyed the entire experience, from the brief lecture at the wine school to the drive into the countryside and the visits to the various wineries. We are converts to Chianti Classico (especially the Reserva). Definitely a highlight of our trip.

The wine school was very airy and modern inside. Our wine expert was very informative and knowledegable about Italian wines and the governed hierarchy. We were given olive oil, biscuits and cheese which accompanied the wines well. Overall, a great experience and would definitely recommend to anyone who is interested in learning about Italian wine. It really gives you the... More

My husband and I along with our daughter and granddaughter started out at the wine school, and then continued with the Chianti Classico tour. The beauty of the Tuscan area and the delicious wines, olive oils made for a fantastic morning and afternoon. The staff that we met were so pleasant and informative. Lunch was delicious! It was a delightful... More

My husband and I joined a group of 10 on an afternoon "Chianti Classico Wine Time" tour. The class before departing to the wineries was informative and helpful, without being boring. The tasting during the class, and the tastings at the wineries were more like full pours than tastings, so I was pleasantly surprised and pleasantly tipsy by the end... More

Several years ago I did this same wine tour with a friend... and HAD to do it again with my husband. The first time I did this with Rebecca it was a small operation, no wine school, small groups, and was very personal. Now they have the Tuscan wine School--- which is in a great location and is a very... More

Me and my boyfriend went with the afternoon Chianti classico-tour and had a fantastic time. The wine school was a great way to start the tour, learning about the area and how to taste wine in a relaxing and non-pretentious way. Good selection of wineyards with AMAZING views and settings - and of course great wine. Fattoria di Montecchio had... More

My son (age 24) and I did a half day tour from 9am to 3pm and it was a fun-filled experience all around. The 45 minute class at the beginning is very educational and really provides a strong background that you can refer to when you visit the wineries. Plus, you have some red wine to drink during the class!... More

What a fantastic day! The tour started out right over the Ponte Vecchio, which was a very easy walk from our hotel. At the Tuscan wine school we had a 45 minute wine tasting class with a fun and energetic teacher. Then we took a van with 3 other couples to two vineyards. The driver was knowledgeable and fun.
